Great Tour and Host

We had Darryl as our guide for this tour.It was very informative,and we saw quite a bit in the time we had.Some excellent (and extremely tempting) tastes of many different foods of the area.All were explained well by Daryl,and he had just the right amount of humour to make the tour informative,but fun.Another highlight was getting to see the old elevated railway through the meatpacking district (something you probably don't think to see when thinking of places to see in NY.I would fully recommend this tour to anyone thinking of doing this sort of tour in this area.The only problem was,it had to end.The time went so quick,and yet you get to see so much.

Chelsea Market - nice location

I totally recommed the tour. Our guide was funny, but talked a little bit too much. All locations were nice and there was enough food for the money we paid. me and my friends would recommend not to start with the cupcakes. It was too sweet for the beginning.

Great guide

Darryl Blacburn, the guide, was great...had a comprehensive knowledge of the area, was very entertaining and engaging and paced the tour well. The food samples and visits to the shops were also well managed in the sense that there was opportunity in some restaurants to sit down and sample the food, which meant there was a break from standing/walking all the time.

Great experience!

We had an absolutely great experience - thanks to the guide, Kurt. He really delivered, and had all sorts off background information, and not to mention a very positive attitude.

The tour concentrated on Chelsea Market, which we at first though was a bit disappointing, but as we the tour went along we dismissed that though entirely. This old factory is so full of old and new, and it was truly interesting to see what the place has become. The tour also went a few blocks south of the Market, and the neighborhood is very interesting. We will definitely consider another food tour next time we get the opportunity to com back to New York City!

Loved this tour, what an amazing guide Kurt was. Firstly he remembered everyone's names, impressive with a group of 16 .He was polite, witty , thoughtful and funny throughout the tour. He answered all questions, it was was his humour I will most remember and kept everyones interest. Time flew by, loved all the food we tried on the tour. Bought some pasta from one of the stores and it was delicious. 10 out of 10 for this tour. Try to get Kurt as your guide , he is such a positive person he will make yr day !

The best thing we did in Manhatten!

It was our first visit to New York and we had this tour lined up for the first day. It gave us a real flavour for what New York is about. The guide was great, welcoming & friendly, involved the whole group - enthusiastic & knowledgable. The tour itself is in an interesting area - and the added bonus of food tastings throughout was great. Would recommend.
